Man Snags The Most Massive Blue Crab Ever

Man Snags the Largest Blue Crab Ever Caught in New York

It’s the kind of catch that goes down in history. A man in The Empire State set a new record for the largest blue crab caught in New York!

New York Man Catches Record Blue Crab
This record-breaking catch took place on the southern shore of Long Island in Moriches Bay. New York has specific guidelines regarding hard shell blue crabs . They must be, at minimum, 4.5 inches to take. Well, this was no problem for Hunter Tracy who set the record for the largest blue crab in the state. His catch measured an incredible 7-3/16 inches, landing him a congratulatory spot on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation website.

Whereas record-setting fish are weighed, blue crabs are a bit different. Instead of setting these crustaceans on a scale to determine where they land in terms of records, they’re measured. Typically, blue crabs live between three and four years. Harvesting starts when they reach 4.5 inches and blue crabs can grow up to nine inches long. The New York State Department of Conservation commented that they believe this record-setting blue crab was likely a full-grown adult in its elder years. Tracy walked away setting a new record with the New York State Record Blue Crab Award in hand, certifying his huge catch.
